The Pacific Symphony Presents CATHEDRALS OF SOUND, 10/23-25
by BWW News Desk - Sep 29, 2014

—“Cathedrals of Sound,” the first Music Unwound concert of Pacific Symphony's season, offers an evening of inspiration, awe and ambience, bathed in waves of sound and reminiscent of the unique spiritual journey taken in 2010, when world-renowned organist Paul Jacobs and the remarkable Norbertine Fathers of St. Michael's Abbey made their first appearance together with the orchestra. In 2014, the Fathers return to fill the hall with their splendid, sonorous and worshipful Voices, and Jacobs performs on the William J. Gillespie Concert Organ for this all-new program. The concert opens with a rarely performed and powerful work of the Italian composer Ottorino Respighi, his “Church Windows.” Inspired by stained glass artistry, it is a work that Pacific Symphony recorded in 1983 with founding music director, Keith Clark. Plus, the rich Voices of the Fathers perform the Gregorian chants that inspired Maurice Duruflé—whose transcendent “Requiem” concludes the program and features vocalists mezzo-soprano Elise Quagliata, baritone William Berger and Pacific Chorale (Artistic Director John Alexander).

BWW Reviews: TUTS Underground's Production of REEFER MADNESS is HIGH-lariously Good
by Nyderah Williams - Sep 28, 2014

The story focuses on two All-American and clean cut high school sweethearts Jimmy (Sean McGee) and Mary Lane (Taylor Beyer). They want to grow up together, have babies, lots of friends and end up happily ever after like their favorite couple “Romeo and Juliet” (a story in which they don't know the horrible ending). Well much like their favorite couple, they are pulled apart and struggle against the odds of being together. Jimmy, under the pretense that he's getting some jazz dance lessons, gets sucked into the lair of a reefer den and after one puff of what they have to offer; he becomes hooked and quickly abandons everything he knows. His fall from grace into a world of debauchery and sexual promiscuity brings on the mayhem as he struggles to choose between the hypnotizing Mary Jane, and his sweetheart Mary Lane. (more...)

BWW Reviews: ALICE'S ANTHEM Gets Wonderland Even More Drugged Up
by Jay Irwin - Sep 28, 2014

I'm all for taking classic stories and turning them on their head as long as you have something interesting to say about them. A new twist on the mythology can be quite fun. And Copious Love's "Alice in Wonderland" musical retelling, "Alice's Anthem", certainly has that with their dark and macabre modern thrill ride through Wonderland. But as much as it has going for it, it has almost as much going against it (which is not difficult in its three hour run time) as many of the scenes, like Alice, tend to lose their way and go beyond what the story wants to tell and into what felt like insider jokes and self indulgences.

by BWW News Desk - Sep 27, 2014

The collection will go LIVE on 25th September and continue till 25th October 2014, and would feature the works of kids from Kindergarten to Grade 12. The theme of the exhibition is Art by Children and is not limited to focus on any one area, thus, allowing each child to explore the world around him/her through art. The medium of the paintings will be Acrylic on Canvas and the size of each work, would range from (2ft x 2ft) to (6ft x 8ft). The children at Christel House, India belong to weaker sections of society and the medium of art has proved to be an effective way for them to express themselves creatively. Their Art Program is integral in shaping their personalities and is often seen to be therapeutic for them. According to Raju Shahani, Managing Director, Christel House India, "At Christel House, we believe that our students can reach their highest potential with a cultivated capacity for imagination. We strive to channelize the creativity in every child by encouraging free expression through various art forms. Our Art Program is integral to our approach in shaping personalities of these impoverished children and helping them express themselves clearly and convincingly. We have found that this focus on art has at times been therapuetic for children going through any learning disability or emotional distress due to their abused background. We are grateful to Sublime Galleria for their offer space and resources to promote art talent of the Christel House children." Christel House & Art: Christel House students have won several international awards and scholarships for their audio visual creations, another creative expression vertical, the most recent being the 2014 Adobe Youth Voices Scholarship. With 118 applications from around the world, three Christel House students from Bangalore made it to the list of Top 25, for their creative skills to change their communities. In another recent example, the children from Christel House India from Grade 7 and above worked for 5 months to develop a document on corruption that went on to win the Best Documentary Award (School Student Category) in the much acclaimed 3rd Bangalore Shorts International Film Festival in 2014. The children used path-breaking techniques for producing and directing the movie such as the Green Screen technique of shooting which is used to create special effects in professional cinema. Christel House students also participate regularly in Berserk (http://www.berserk.in) - a unique creative conference that helps hone a child's artistic abilities. The Christel House curriculum for the visual arts includes: * Drawing & Painting * Collage * Printmaking * Decoration * Clay Modelling & Pottery * Mask & Puppet Making * Wall Mural * Collaborating Art Projects * Art History * Photography & Film Making About Christel House: Christel House was founded in 1998 by Christel DeHaan, entrepreneur turned philanthropist. It opened five learning centers from 1999 to 2002. Currently Christel House provides education, food, and other assistance to over three thousand children globally. Christel House's approach is holistic. In addition to an education equal to that offered by India's best educational institutions, it provides food, counselling and healthcare. Outside the Learning Center, it works to improve the home life of the students. It has a strong community outreach program that focuses on creating awareness and connection within the community. The aim is to bridge the gap between the home and the school environments and develop a strong parent-teacher team, united in the responsibility of raising the children well. Finally, in its endeavor of ending the cycle of poverty in society, Christel House also offers guidance with continuing education and job placement after graduation. In India, Christel House is the only charity that takes on children from Kindergarten and mentors them through Grade 12 and beyond into colleges and jobs. All donor contributions are used only for the children and not on general and administrative expenses of the school.
